A lot of 70s so called “Blaxploitation” movies were built on their soundtracks, which would be released prior to the movie. Those fantastic records would draw more attention to the film and well, Curtix Mayfield’s Superfly was a massive album.
I had one of these when I first started collecting toys, it always reminded me of Winslow Leach’s chest unit in Phantom of the Paradise. Illco also made this in “Starsky and Hutch” which is super dorky.
I must admit that if I found a display of Battle of the Planets figures in 1978 that only contained Princess, I’d have bought it. My love for Battle of the Planets supersedes the cooties of girl dolls, I know I would have done it.
I super love the deranged early version of Big Bird merchandise; it’s creepy but not threatening.
I totally missed this show when it first aired but this record, which hung at “Dragon Lady Comics” for a good decade, was a reminder. It’s about a guy who can be invisible for an hour a day. Mystery Science Theatre 3000 was where I first got to see it.
